recomLine HCV IgG
Strip-Immunoassay with antigens produced by recombinant techniques for the detection of IgG antibodies against Hepatitis C Virus (HCV).
The most important pathogen responsible for parenterally transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis is the Hepatitis C virus (HCV). This disease is characterized by an incubation period of 2 – 26 weeks and a mild to fulminant course in the acute phase. 50 – 70 % of the patients develop chronic hepatitis which leads to liver cirrhosis in 20 % of the cases. As with hepatitis B, the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma is also greatly increased in the case of a chronic HCV infection.
The recomLine HCV IgG assay uses recombinant antigens from the Core region, NS3, NS4 and NS5 and provides an easy and a reliable assay for HCV IgG antibody.
• Includes 6 serologically relevant HCV antigens.
• Control band on every strip.
• Detects antibodies to HCV genotypes 1-6.
• No cross-reactivity with other hepatitis viruses.

Test Principle and Procedure
Recombinant HCV Antigens
1st Incubation A test strip loaded with HCV antigens is incubated with diluted sample in a dish for 3 hours.
Wash strip 3 times.
2nd Incubation Peroxidase conjugated anti-human antibody (IgG specific) is added. Incubate for 45 minutes.
Wash strip 3 times.
Color reaction 8 minutes after addition of the coloring solution, insoluble colored bands develop at the sites on the test strips occupied by antibodies.
